PBS chief to speak in Wyoming

Laramie, Wyo. – The Public Broadcasting System is facing some challenges as it tries to remain relevant in the 21st century.

P-B-S President and C-E-O Paula Kerger says quality local programming is important, but from a national standpoint she wants to focus on three key areas.

Kerger says PBS continues to bolster education-based children's programming; the group is putting more emphasis on the arts. And Kerger says that she believes PBS's news offerings will also be critical.

Kerger is in Wyoming this week speaking on behalf of PBS and Wyoming Public Television.
